Thank you Xenia and Drasco - a great location, and a hassle-free experience. Hope to return again one day :)
Superbe vue, un rêve, jolie décoration donc séjour très agréable!
The apartment is bright, cozy, clean, stunning views from the windows. The apartment has everything you need, coffee maker, toaster, stove. There are some problems with the plumbing, but it is not critical. Loved it, I
recommend. Ideal for two or three people.
Recently back from our honeymoon that included a week stay at this beautiful apartment in Barcelona. Waking up to that beautiful view was a wonderful way to start each day. The apartment is located in great location and we accessed everything we wanted to see by foot or the hop on hop off bus. It was great to have all of the comforts of home on our holiday.
The stairs up to the apartment are a bit daunting but after all the Bravas and Gelato we probably needed the extra exercise:) There are 89 of them, in case you are wondering. We would also recommend being careful walking down them as one of us landed on her butt on one occasion and it wasn't fun. Aside from the steps, there was some leaks in the bathroom from the sink and shower but a few towels on the floor before taking a shower helped make the mess easier to clean up. This by no means was a dealbreaker for us though, we would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Drasko was easy to deal with and let us store our bags in his office while we waited for the apartment to be cleaned.
If you are thinking of visiting Barcelona we would highly recommend this apartment.
Our experience was amazing! My friend Sarah and I stayed at Ksenia and Drasko's apartment, and WOW it was in a great location on Barcelonetta beach- an easy walk or quick metro to La Rambla. The walls and windows are thick, so you don't get woken up from any shenanigans going on below, and the utilities in the apartment are clean and nice (YAY for air-conditioning!). Thank you so much for a great experience!
P.S. When renting this apartment, make sure to reserve the wifi in advance.
The best situated spot on Barceloneta beach! The wrap-around deck and breathtaking views make the 5 flight walk up well worth it. Our hosts were energetic and willing to share tips for great places to eat and places to visit.
We were three girls staying for Sonar Festival so we decided to choose a cozy studio with sea view over a bigger appartment far away from the beach.
Couldn't have asked for more. The apartment has everything you need to stay for your holidays, and the landlords are super helpful. Be sure to ask for wifi in advance if you need it :)
One bed and two sofas that can easily be used as beds as well, washing machine, stove, internet, dvd, cd player... Uau!!!
(no oven though)
Looking forward to coming back. :)
The most outstanding about this apartment is only the view !
The disappointment were : the bathroom wall requires an urgent grouting job, the shower curtain (bottom) was dirty and mildew, it floods whenever you take a shower, the floor tub is already cracked, the liquid detegent for the washing machine is already long expired where fungus growing in it, leftover water in the kettle by the previous guest , No WIFI in the apartment ( Can only access WIFI if you go out to the public hotspot ) .
My experience in Ksenia and Drasko's flat was nothing short of amazing. The space was absolutely STUNNING and is perfectly depicted through the photos. The view however, is more beautiful in person.
I highly recommend this flat to anyone who is looking for a perfect getaway in Barcelona.
We have spend few days last week in this apartment and everything was just perfect. The apartment itself is so nice, the view is amazing when you open your eyes and see the sea and sunrise in the morning. Hosts were really great. Drasko and his friend helped us carry our luggage upstairs and helped in whatever questions or problems we had. This is really worth recommending.
